II TOURIST KOTO PARK IN PROSPECT Meeting Feld Friday and Committee Appointed to Look up the Matter. An important meeting was held in the club rooms last Friday even ing concerning the purchase of the tract of land between the railroad and the river now used as a ball park. It is proposed to secure this beautiful site for an auto park, and amusement purposes. F. A. Jones, C. O. Portfors and John Oud were appointed as a committee to take up the matter and it is probable that an association will be formed to take over the site and make the necessary improvements for an up to date auto park. Elk River la boosting for a tourist camp ground and other places already are ac comodating autoists with conven ient stopping places. The following excerpts from tne Elk River news are applicable here: "The idea for a camp ground is commercial as well as hospitable and we hear that many towns have found them an asset. The revenue to merchants in the experience or many places, is all out of proportion to the cost of maintenance and it gives a town which has one a plac s in the automobile guide books that other towns do not have. The place that a town with a camping ground occupies in the estimation of the traveler does not need to be set forth at length, and the town that •does not have one the tourists pass by in a hurry. Trade of tourists— and it is considerable-—Is diverted front the place which does not of fer them this hospitality to the place where the lights glow »11 night, water is provided and other conveniences are at hand." The prospective early completion of the link in the highway between here and Lewiston wtll gtve » river route from the west to the county seat and with an auto camping ground at this point would make is Orofino a Mecca for the auto tour ists.
